Video: Uncanny Valley

The description: In the slums of the future, virtual reality junkies satisfy their violent impulses in online entertainment. An expert player discovers that the line between games and reality is starting to fade away. 3DAR’s latest short film explores the frightening potential of our next technological revolution.

My take: This short film is one of those things that looks good with a story that may draw you in. However, when you think about the kinds of things they are exploring in the seven or so minutes they take, the whole experience will haunt you. The writer/director Federico Heller is someone to keep an eye on. I highly recommend watching this video and thinking about what you saw, instead of merely consuming and moving on to the next thing.
